i ventured outside today to take some photos of last night's ice storm. there will likely be another in a few hours. the next storm may cause more ice everywhere, which would take these scenes from beautiful to dangerous.
i forgot that ice storms make noise. the wind makes the icy branches crackle. it's pretty loud given the typical muffled quiet of winter storms.
hot chocolate and a book sound really wonderful right now. if you are anywhere near these storms, please be safe.
